Hometown Urgent Care Expands into Michigan and Kentucky - Sets up Five Clinics in Two Months with More Coming
“Expansion into Michigan and Kentucky is part of our vision to be the leading provider of Urgent Care services in the Midwest Region” said Brian Barbaric, Director of Marketing for Hometown.
“We work with local ERs across the Midwest to make our quality healthcare affordable and convenient. While ERs are important for life-threatening conditions, ERs are over utilized and overburdened with minor injuries and illnesses which can be taken care of in a full-service facility like Hometown Urgent Care,” stated Mr. Barberic.
Mr. Barberic continued,“The average wait time here at Hometown is less that one quarter the wait time for the ER. The cost can be up to 88% less than the ER, and the co-pay is usually one third of the ER. Compared to the ER, each visit will save, on average, over $1,000 in healthcare costs. Our goal is simple: Quality, affordable healthcare, seven days a week.”
